  • Dappered confessions

    While this is a style forum and many like to view themselves as always dressed “dappered” we all have some style no-no secrets I’m sure. Curious what others are... time to admit your style no-no guilty pleasures!

    Mine... as someone very outdoorsy I wear my “technical” clothing in the real world all the time. Bright orange puffy ✅ neon shell ✅ melly hoody (if you know you know) ✅ All my technical clothes are extremely well made and show off my character rather than an overcoat or something the like.

      Hey, that's being dappered if you're heading into downtown Seattle/South Lake Union.

          I sometimes wear a pair of Nike Air Monarchs in public. Granted it's strictly to the gym but still.

            I have at least four pairs of shoes I've never worn other than to try them on. And several more that I've never worn outside the confines of our house and back deck.
            WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

              I'm not bragging or anything, but I have 53 pairs of AE shoes/boots and I've only worn maybe 10 pairs. I see a deal, act on it, and "squirrel" it away and usually forget about it. Prime example, I have about 10 pairs of Gustin selvedge jeans/4 pairs of chinos that I put in a plastic bin and totally forgot about. I've since lost weight and can no longer fit them! I either have to sell them or find an experienced tailor in the metro-Atlanta area who can chain-stitch/alter the jeans/chinos. The weight loss is definitely good, but talk about being pissed after that discovery!!!

                What size are the shoes and pants, good friend?!?

                Gustin pants are not bad though they do fit pretty tight overall. Have you tried them on? Or given them a wash, they should shrink quite a bit.

                  Thanks for the info. Most of the shoes are 11D and I'm not letting any of them go. The jeans are 37 straight and I'm now down to 34. They're brand new, tried on only. I doubt they will shrink 3 inches though. I know that Gustin has a defined return/exchange policy but it couldn't hurt to ask...

                      they're so comfortable and the sperry gold cups are nice enough for office wear...i sold a good chunk of my dress shoes now that i'm not in consulting any more (i don't deal with clients much any more)

                        Wow. And I thought I was bad with my shoe collection:

                        https://threads.dappered.com/showthr...ght=collection

                        Four of the pairs in the back row are currently in the car waiting for me to take them to Goodwill.

                        [MENTION=21001]2Fresh![/MENTION], I would love to see a photo of all of your shoes!

                            Gustin has been very good to me about returns, even ‘stale’ items like you describe. The items just can’t be washed or have any definite creasing...ie things their denim head clientele wont tolerate...

                              My personal uniform is the business mullet. I work in technology on the tech side of the house so I’m already pushing it with this.
                              Even on bow tie Tuesday, I’m still wearing my Gustin jeans.
